1909-1911 T206 White Border Ty Cobb Red Background PSA EX-MT 6

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $9,000

Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA (submitted by REA). Magnificent high-grade example of what is universally recognized as one of Cobb's most striking cards! The Red Background pose has long been considered one of the great classics of the T206 set, and of all vintage cards. The offered example is extremely attractive! It has a particularly striking portrait, and brilliant colors with a strong red background. Extremely crisp and clean, both front and back, with near-perfect centering and four strong corners showing light touches of wear (slightly more in the upper right). Bold Piedmont advertising on reverse. The T206 Cobb Red Background portrait is one of the key cards from the premier tobacco issue of the 1910 era, and this example would be a significant highlight in any world-class T206, Hall of Famer, or Ty Cobb card collection. The SMR value in the assigned grade is $2,800. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $9,000
